Infiniti reveals Q Inspiration Concept ahead of 2018 Detroit Motor Show debutJanuary 3, 2018
New Infiniti concept car signals the future of the brand’s design language, and will be revealed in full at Detroit later this month
Infiniti has revealed a new Detroit Motor Show bound concept car, which will be used to showcase a new-generation design language for Nissan’s premium sub-brand.
Called the Q Inspiration concept, it’s a svelte, smooth looking rakish saloon with an elongated coupe like rear. A new LED taillight spans the width of the back end, while a dramatic cutaway sits in the bodywork just behind the front wheel arch.
The Q Inspiration Concept is the first major project overseen by Habib at Infiniti. The firm’s new lead designer joined the Japanese luxury marque from BMW last year.
We still don’t know what kind of powertrain Infiniti is going to use in the Q Inspiration concept but expect to see a version of the new variable compression engine that debuted with the 2019 QX50, or even an electrified powertrain.
More importantly the upcoming Q Inspiration will give us an early taste of what the company is planning to do design-wise with its upcoming models, adopting more flowing lines and more imposing, muscular shapes.
The new Infiniti Q Inspiration is set to debut at the Detroit Auto Show on January 15
